I think it's popped up in a few "set 3's". Don't hold me to this but I think they did DS as an encore on this night because of a lunar eclipse or something to that effect. Someone else might have more info on this

first DS since 12/31/81 and last until 10/9/89...not often enough!

can't confirm the lunar eclipse, but one review states;

"This show was played on a Friday the 13th with a Full Moon. Supposedly this was the first time this had happened in 200 years."

Boys anted to do something special for Friday the 13th Lunar Eclipse. Was planned a few days ahead, word leaked out to some close to the know. People tried to get in from all over. This was the first night of a 3 night run at the Greeks

Next night encore - "Day Job"

I was there and am really glad I was "not in the know" since I got one of the great surprises of my years with the boys. After the second set, Phil steps to the mike and says something along the lines of "hang loose as we're going to try something special tonight" (those with auds can tell me exactly when it was and what he said - I'm going on memory). The boys come back on as a shooting star shoots across the sky while a big old full moon is sittng in the right hand corner over the Golden Gate from my vantage up on the hill (dancing in the paved corridor right below the grass). When Phil hit those first few notes, it was pure delight and pandemonium. One of my great moments at a show (as it was at Hampton when they broke out a ragged but momentous Box of Rain). Not a bad way to start a run that included Saturday, Sunday and then down the coast to two dates in Ventura (with some weird DNC moments in SF for the 84 convention in between).
